Synopsis

Lost and Found Gift Set by Oliver Jeffers

Set sail on an exciting adventure with your very own penguin in this magical gift set. There once was a boy...and one day a penguin arrives on his doorstep. The boy decides the penguin must be lost and tries to return him. But no one seems to be missing a penguin. So the boy decides to take the penguin home himself, and they set out in his row boat on a journey to the South Pole. But when they get there, the boy discovers that maybe home wasn't what the penguin was looking for after all...

Reviews

'An uplifting story...pictures of such spare beauty...suffused with a dreamlike quality.'
Independent Online

'Oliver Jeffers makes impressive use of space in this affecting story of friendship...illustrations capture feelings of loss and loneliness through the most delicate nuances of facial expression...and body language.'
Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

'One of the most perfect stories in recent years featuring... one of the best conclusions in all of children's fiction. I can't wait until my nephew is old enough to read this with me, but until then, I'm more than happy to read it to myself. A minor masterpiece and one which will remain with you forever.'
Bury Free Press

'Jeffers has a unique writing and illustrative style. It's a wonderful picture book.'
Publishing News

'My picture book of the year, a joyful exploration of the power of friendship.'
Irish Independent
